1. Use of our websites for information purposes
If you visit our website purely for information purposes, i.e. if you transmit no personal information to us and/or do not register to use our online shop, we collect only such data that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This is:
- Date and time of access
- Timezone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of request (concrete website)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- The amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- The last website visited
- Operating system used
- Information about the browser type
- Browser settings
- Language and version of browser software
- User’s IP address
The log files contain IP addresses or other data that enable an association with a user. For example, this could be the case if the link to the website from which the user accesses the website or the link to the website to which the user changes contains personal data.
The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
2. Legal basis for the data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and the log files is Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR.
3. Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems.
These purposes include our legitimate interest in the data processing pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR.
4. Duration of storage
The data is erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its collection. This happens when the particular session has ended, in the event of data being captured for the provision of the website.
When data is stored in log files, it happens after seven days at the latest. It is possible for data to be stored beyond this point. In this instance, the IP addresses of the users are erased or anonymised, so that an association with the accessing client is no longer possible.
5. Possibility of objection and removal
The capture of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolute necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
